  • E. Molinari disqualified after caddie hitches cart ride on Euro Tour

    Edoardo Molinari got disqualified from the European Tour's  Shenzhen International in China on Friday. But it wasn't really his fault.

    Molinari's caddie apparently hitched a ride between the ninth and 10th holes, which is a penalty for the player. (You've got to walk, buddy.) Unfortunately, Molinari didn't see it.

     

    Got DQ because my caddy jumped on a buggy between the 9th and the 10th hole yesterday. I didn't see him unfortunately as I was 20 yds ahead.

     

    The Italian should have called a two-stroke penalty on himself, turning his 75 into a 77. However, he signed for 75, which meant he was disqualified for signing for an incorrect score less than his actual score.

    The caddie was trying to adhere to the basic looper code of "Show up, keep up and shut up," but, in doing so, it led to a mess up.

    Ryan Ballengee at Devil Ball Golf2 days ago

    With the Masters behind us, we turned to one of golf's most enjoyable voices to review Jordan Spieth's record-setting win. Paul McGinley, winning 2014 Ryder Cup captain, joined the show to talk about Jordan Spieth's approach to the Masters and how he took control of the event. The Irishman also shared his views on how Rory McIlroy turned around his Masters in the final 45 holes, as well how Justin Rose did in standing toe-to-toe with Spieth.

    McGinley also spoke about the Windsor beachfront community in Florida, where he was doing a post-Masters exhibition, including the important takeaways for amateurs and what he hopes people learn from him when he talks golf.
